and medicare from his list of priorities, and what, as my friend from tennessee pointed out, we have a $16 trillion debt. and for to us say that we're not going to do anything about spending when we all know that spending is the biggest problem we have in this agreement, again, that is throwing kerosene on the fire that's on the other side of the capitol and that's my republican colleagues on the other side of the aisle who have committed and pledged to their constituents that we will end this hemaging that -- hemorrhaging that we call spending which has given us the greatest debt in the history of this country. so i guess i would ask my colleague from south carolina, who is usually very modest and reticent in explaining his views particularly in various media outlets of his view on this situation. mr. graham: thank you, senator. i guess my first view is it's better not to go over the cliff than to go over the cliff, but it's also important, as you just said, to understand what we've accomplished. let's assume for a moment and let's hope that this is a good assumption that we reach an agre
awake from tennessee in the nashville area up to kentucky. those storms are headed for the east coast during the day today. we had about 250 reports of severe weather. thankfully at this point no confirmed fatalities, but we are checking on one possibly in tennessee. we've had four tornadoes. i actually thought the tornadoes would be a little worse. the wind damage as expected. where are the storms now? exiting nashville, louisville, heading through eastern kentucky, ohio. kentucky, west virginia, also areas of eastern tennessee and western north carolina. and now those storms are rolling through alabama with a new tornado watch issued for the birmingham into the montgomery area. so we're not done yet. and if you're in that area of yellow which includes pretty much everyone east of the appalachians south of philadelphia and pittsburgh, you're going to deal with these severe storms. it's going to be a straight line. it's going to move through with really strong, gusty winds. then the weather will begin to get very much colder and windy on the backside. a lot of airport delays. also, i
million s of americans that want to defend themselves. harold, you're from tennessee, an nra supporter. l let's talk about people in the northeast that don't understand what nra has been, what a great organization it has been through the years. how the organization has not always been the organization it became in the mid-1990s. could you explain gun owners and how they're appalled by things like this? there are polls out today we're going to be reading today, it's shifted. their extremism is destroying the them. >> many of those were members of nra who appreciated the sports organization who protected the hunters and sports rights have to be curious how and why the organization has allowed the credibility of members to be besmirched and diminished all in an effort to protect people with huge magazines, all in an effort to protect those against comprehensive background checks. the polls show people don't protect those things. >> survivalists for gun manufacturers. >> and there's no tennessean who appreciates the season's changing and go out and enjoy an afternoon as people do playing bask

're in the "sideshow" now. another way for republicans to avoid getting support from low-income voters? enter tennessee state senator stacey campfield with this bold proposal. slash welfare benefits for parents whose kids do poorly in school. well, that's right. according to campfield, somehow the threat of less food on the table is the ticket to getting parents to help their kids in school. figure that one out. >>> anyway, something campfield said on this network was catnip for the folks at the tonight show. >>> tennessee state senator stacey campfield advocates he wants legislation that will reduce welfare payments to families if their kids are getting bad grades. they cut their welfare payments if the kids get bad grades. i'm not sure he did that well in school himself. this is a segment we call the botched cliche of the day senator edition. >> well, first off, we're not -- i'm not setting the bar like the kids have to become rocket surgeons. >> rocket surgeons. is that like tree surgeons? >>> next, let's take a look at this headline from the washington times. quote, reagan's home could become a par

. weather channel meteorologist mike seidel has more from knoxville, tennessee. hey, mike. >> reporter: hey, t.j. here in knoxville the ice storm is now just a memory. we had nine hours of freezing rain. but as you can see here on the trees it's all gone. it all melted. in fact temperatures overnight rose into the mid 30s. but yesterday we had hundreds of accidents across kentucky here in tennessee, even north georgia and through the western carolinas. one fatality reported in upstate south carolina. but the north georgia mountains had ice and cars skidding off the roadways. the other angle with this storm is the fact that we had snow from the ohio valley all the way to the northeast. but the snowfall amounts were on the light side from columbus to pittsburgh, into washington. generally a 1 to 2 inch snowfall. philadelphia and new york central park had 1 1/2 inches of snow. for the first time in chicago in 335 days they had an inch of snow. so the record streak ends but they've only had now about three inches for the entire winter. it still stays very cold today across the midwest and north
warnings and the freezing rain advisories extending back into portions of tennessee and into mississippi as well. you can see the pink on the map there on the radar. we are still seeing freezing rain. it makes the roads very slippery, and driving conditions are treacherous in that area. then it transitions over into snow. it's coming down pretty heavily up through boston, stretching right back into providence, rhode island. lighter outside of 495 in that area, but it is still making a mess of the roadways, and we are looking within 24 hours to see about 3 to 6 inches in that a a area. the lighter shade of blue there is a 24-hour snow total, and everywhere else across the northeast basically from northern maine right down to northern pennsylvania, even northern new jersey, we are looking for about 1 to 3 inches. so it is going to be a very slippery morning commute all across the northeast. sa vvanna savannah? >> thank you. president obama will unveil his new recommendations for gun control this morning in the tragedy of newtown, connecticut. and the national rifle association is already

: george in clarksville, tennessee, republican caller. caller: yes, hi. i just like to make a comment or two. i believe that any executive order regarding guns is always aimed at law-abiding citizens. this administration flooded the market with thousands of weapons for criminals and now it seems like he slowly wants to disarm our country. we can't control our borders. how will he -- i guess russian gun dealers are probably drooling. one other comment i'd like to make. he will be surrounded by children when he makes his announcement. it seems like during the gulf war, saddam hussein surrounded himself with children and that was a chilling video. those children were scared to death. thank you very much. guest: i think the caller makes a very good point with regard to the issue of focusing on criminals and unfortunately the bureau of alcohol, tobacco, firearms and explosives is involved in a very serious issue which has been well discussed and we'll continue to examine this. the attorney general of the united states was held in contempt for not releasing information about the fwast and f
